Opposing Pair of 20th Century Oxblood and Celadon Glazed Ceramic Resting Lions


These lions of likely English origin feature a fascinating oxblood and celadon glaze, originally a Chinese method but taken up by potters and artists in England and Scandinavia during the first part of the 20th century and used on art pottery as well as stoneware. The good sized lions are wonderfully modeled with lively eyes and postures.
